    Readers, I'd like you to meet my sanity saver. This is where I start each year before working in my classroom. My binder. This baby is my planner, organizer and keep-me-sane-inizer. That's why I'm devoting an entire post to it. No, really, it just plays a huge part in my day and I'm excited to share it in the hopes that it might help that newbie teacher feel a little bit more "above" water. Needless to say, I've got lots of things to share.

    Your Job -vs- My Job: This is a great back to school activity. We met up at the small group table and discussed jobs that students might have, and the jobs a teacher has to do. We discussed what would happen if we didn't do these things? Once we created our anchor chart we all signed it as a contract reminding ourselves of the importance of being responsible and doing our jobs in the classroom.

    Fraction of the Day Common Core Aligned 5th Grade: This idea of a fraction of the day is great! Start it in 3rd grade.

    (Because I totally gave away brownie points in my teaching practicum.. and made brownies for my kids on the last day of class.) Whole Class Reward, once the tray is full of brownies, they pick a reward from a mystery bag.

    I'll have one Star Student each week, but I'm contemplating having them all fill this out first week of school, then keeping them on file.

    Laminate, have students write the answer to an exit slip with dry erase marker. Color code by class. Good way to quickly assess. Kids grab ticket on way in the room, drop in basket on way out.
